Jordan: Appears There Was Orchestrated Plan Within DOJ, FBI to Prevent Trump From Becoming President
Rep. Jim Jordan believes there was an orchestrated plan within the Justice Department and FBI to keep Donald Trump from becoming president of the United States.
Jordan (R-Ohio) pointed to revelations about a member of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, Peter Strzok, who was removed from the Russia investigation after his anti-Trump text messages were discovered. Strzok was also a key player in the Hillary Clinton email probe.
Jordan noted that one text seemed to reference FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency.
Jordan also noted that there are questions about the FBI's involvement with the infamous Trump dossier, including if the dossier was used by the bureau to obtain clearance for surveillance on members of the Trump campaign.
He added that senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr was demoted amid an investigation into his contacts with the firm responsible for the dossier.
"Everything points to the fact that there was an orchestrated plan to try to prevent Donald Trump from being the next president of the United States," Jordan said.
He said he thinks that plan was to use the dossier to do everything possible to hurt Trump's candidacy.
